Natural landscapes: the terrain of fungus


You know autumn is approaching when mushrooms and fungus appear in sheltered forests. I was in this western Canadian park to photograph a roaring mountain stream, but there were so many fungus alongside the trail that I had to stop and photograph a few of them.
This one was pretty epic, so I opted for an extreme close-up – in fact, what you’re looking at here is much larger than life-size. Because I was hand-holding my Nikon D7100 (and close-ups usually have a very small depth-of-field), I did a lot of exposures to ensure one was in focus. That was a smart decision, because all the vertical pictures I made lacked the tack-sharpness I want in a photo.
